El Gato Dia de los muertos 13

Hi there everyone! It is my turn to share over on the Karleigh Sue blog today, and I’ve managed to sneak in a last minute project with the brand new image ‘El gato dia de los muertos‘ that Cheri finished up inking the other day… It’s such an awesome image, especially if you are like me and love everything cat, day of the dead, and mardi gras related!


I went to town with the copics on this card! there were literally too many to list, as I tried to make it as colourful as possible.. and I had to do ‘David Bowie eyes’ – every time I can sneak odd coloured eyes into a project I will, as it definitely makes you look!

I also added a quote from Bruce Beresford – ‘ there’s a bright spot in every cloud’…. I know he’s a cat, not a cloud, but it seemed to fit!

*EDIT – now with a bigger image of the card, as requested by Eret!
